    Trouble uploading a photo and help out there?

    I cannot seem to be able to download or attach a photo to the group. Any ideas?

    ​Are you trying from your computer or iPad? There are different instructions depending on what you are using.

    have you checked the help center on the board?, there are several posts on how to upload:

    Make sure the size of the file is not too big.

    On another thread PatriceJ said they are going to look into making it simpler. There are a lot of us who have not been able to post pictures, for one reason or another.

    I think the two most common problems are (1) having a file that is too large to upload and (2) not hitting the 'upload' button after you use your browser to select a file.

    I've not been able to post pics since the board changed. I assumed it was my computer which was new about that time.

    But there's also no consistency even when I do post pictures.

    And I know my pics are the right size, and I know I'm hitting upload. ;-)

    For instance, sometimes I can post many pictures interspersed with text exactly where I want them to be.
    I can see the little pictures in the reply box.

    Other times...I can see the pictures with the text but they all end up as attachments at the end of the post.
    Or they end up as attachments within the text....but no pics, just marked as the attachment file ...... which can't even be opened.

    And yet other times I can't see the pic in my preview post as I'm typing and trying to insert it, but if I go to ADVANCED, I can see it listed under photo mgmt, and it WILL show when posted.

    Sometimes I think it works if I add all the pictures FIRST before any text.
    But the next time it won't work that way.

    So it's just all very, very annoying.

    I don't even try anymore. Was so easy before, but after many failed attempts I just gave up.

    Same here, and almost every day I wish I could share pics. Won't be happening from this computer.
